man-db 2.8.7-3 source package in Ubuntu


man-db (2.8.7-3) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Stop trying to get dh_installman to use the just-built version of man.
    There are too many reasons this can fail, and it's of marginal utility
    (dh_installman only uses man for recoding, which is pretty stable).
  * Update path to Gnulib files in debian/copyright.
  * Add a debian/upstream/metadata file.
  * Re-export debian/upstream/signing-key.asc without extra signatures.
  * Override shlib-calls-exit Lintian tag for libman-*.so, since this is
    intentional and OK.
